This really makes you stop and think: "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government"..

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money (generous gifts) from the public treasury. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship."

"The average age of the world's greatest civilization has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through this sequence.

From bondage to spiritual faith;
from spiritual faith to great courage;
from courage to liberty;
from liberty to abundance,
from abundance to selfishness;
from selfishness to complacency,
from complacency to apathy,
from apathy to dependency,
from dependence back into bondage."


The Forces Behind America's Economic Destruction:

We are facing a financial disaster that is as bad as any that have existed in history. Just consider
the following few facts:

1. 50 million Americans are living below the poverty line -- 17 million of them are children.

2. 47 million citizens rely on food stamps.

3. The 2008 economic collapse cost over $20 trillion.

4. Millions lost their homes, jobs, and millions are children going hungry.

5. In US and other developed countries suicide rates skyrocketed because of the financial stress
and the disruption of families.

6. The rate of employment is officially 7.5 percent. Tyler Cowen of George Mason University thinks
it may be as high as 41%, since 33% of Americans are not working and have given up looking for
jobs. This group is categorically removed from Government statistics.

In spite of the incredible statistics above, one group stands out: THE GLOBAL ELITE. They have
more than $32 trillion stashed in offshore banks around the world. Their total wealth is larger
than the US GDP and the national debt combined! And their wealth is growing by the day.

What are corporations trying to do, destroy our nation altogether? Then perhaps employ a weakened
starving people, who will be all too eager to do exactly as they are told, just to be able to receive the
scraps that fall from their masters' tables? This used to happen in certain countries during the worst
days of the Middle Ages, some 600 or 700 years ago.

How much longer, do you think, things can go on in this way?


It might be more accurate to think that a coup has happened in Washington, although it was on a

smaller scale: How did the Republican Party change hands? How did the earlier Republican leadership
get kicked out? It might also be said that these same people are now trying to destroy the Democratic
Party, too. So, this coup is still ongoing. I wonder what America will be like in a few more years.

Would they be the same people who firmly believe every single lie ever uttered by the Extreme Right?

And I hope she believed you, when you tried to enlighten her?

So be careful about the doctrines and dogmas of any and all religions. My opinion

is that most of them were man-made, and designed so that the churches
will be able to maintain power and control over their followers.

If he should enter the presidential primaries, would it be better for the nation for him

to do so as an Independent or as a Democrat? I would vote for him in the
primaries (unless people like Warren or Grayson also should run). And after
that I'd vote for the Democratic winner, whoever s/he should be.

We can stop the Koch brothers by boycotting their products. Our help is needed. See below:

Koch brothers are trying to buy their way to victory in the Senate this Nov. They are
also using their vast supply of money to destroy unions, bribe politicians, buy
votes.....etc..... They're using all the dirty tricks they can think of to "win." You
name it.

There is a new movement going on now by Daily Kos to stop them: "DON'T BUY KOCH
INDUSTRY products. BOYCOTT them." They've made a list of the goods and products
manufactured by the Koch Bros. (Just click the link below for the list).

Will you join in the boycott? Will you help to spread this information among your family,
friends, neighbors.....? It's about time that we showed the Koch brothers that they can
be hit, and HIT HARD!!! They've succeeded to a large extent in subjugating the American
people to their will. We can show them that we can stop them and get everything back
that is ours by right!

Freedom is never free. We have to fight for it.

The list:

Please kick this post every now and then, so that more people will get informed and join
this boycott to make it a big success. We know the Koch brothers can dish it out. Let's
see how well they can take it -- for a change.

At the present rate of consumption, all the known oil reserves in the world will run out

in about 100 years anyway -- even if we don't suffocate before then. Why not
switch over to alternative forms of energy right now? It's not that oil is the
only form of energy that exists on earth. In fact, if we had started switching
over to solar, wind.....and others forms of energy 40 years ago, we would have
been sitting pretty energywise right now, nor would we be having the pollution
that exists today.

But there are too many people dumb enough to listen to and believe the lies of
the oil companies. They prefer to take the word of our sociopathic corporation
leaders. Maybe we deserve to do ourselves and our world in. We certainly are
dumb enough and trying our best to do so.

You are right. The corporations are doing everything they can possibly think of--

both legal and criminal -- to destroy whatever Obama is trying to accomplish
for our nation.

I have never seen a more cunning, evil and destructive group of people in all
my days. Instead of evolving into something better, these people are
retrogressing to an earlier, more vicious and primitive type of humans that we
had taken so long and so painfully grown out of.
